Top 50 iPhone Apps for Moms
About a week after I began using my iPhone, I was in love. I had a calendar with me at all times, and I was able to stay on top of my family's schedule - even though there are six of us! I had email access while I was out, so I wasn't constantly playing catch up with PTO business in the evening. And then I discovered apps! With these programs, I could track my baby's feeding schedule, my family's illnesses, and my attempts at exercise. And there were apps that could help keep my children entertained and educated! My iPhone was quickly becoming a vital tool that made my busy mom life more manageable.
In January 2009 I began a website, The iPhone Mom, dedicated to helping moms find apps that could do the same for them. Since beginning the site, I've seen both the quantity and quality of useful apps for moms grow.
Babble.com asked me to put together a list of my Top 50 iPhone Apps for Moms. Here, in descending order, are my favorites and the ones I think you'll find most useful.

Smart-ICE4family is another application that you’ll hope to never need, but if an emergency situation occurs, you’ll be very glad it’s on your phone. The app was designed by a former EMS director, and it allows you to enter in personal information that emergency responders would need to know, such as the height, weight, hair color, religion, medical issues, allergies, medical devices, emergency contacts and hospital preferences of your family members. (There is a smart-ICE app for individuals, but the family version lets you store information for up to eight people.) The app will let you record an audio message that can play automatically when it is opened — important if you’re ever in an emergency and unable to speak for yourself. The message could convey any critical information or contact numbers that you’d want people to know. You can also dial 911 from the app, and after you do so, the phone goes into alert mode. An alarm will sound every few minutes, alerting responders to your location if you’re unconscious.
